One of the visitors to a feeder out back, a male Cardinal.  



 Uh-oh!  He sees me......



 and away he goes!




I am joining Misty's Camera CrittersEileen's Saturday's Critters, and Anni's Bird D'Pot.  Thank you for hosting these great memes ladies.

What a fun series !! I love these birds. Have a post about them in my unpublished queue, with pictures that aren't anywhere near as good as these.

The bird is quicker than the eye!

Frank said...

Hi Denise. Lovely views of the Cardinal.

William Kendall said...

Terrific captures of him, Denise! That second one really brings out his personality.

Janie said...

Beautiful shots of the camera, Denise. I wish we had cardinals here, but I've never seen one in Utah.

Elephant's Child said...

What a stunning, vibrant gift of colour.

Susan said...

Such a handsome fellow Denise. I like his pose on the feeder too.
Meant to say on my last visit how much I love your header pic :D)

Hi Denise,

How sweet to get a photo of the sweet cardinal - great shots.

Happy Sunday
Hugs

Adam said...

nice cardinal

Carole M. said...

these birds certainly are a photographer's dream I should think. Resting up on the decorative wrought-iron really makes for a fabulous image; well done

Mama Zen said...

What a handsome bird!

Carletta said...

Beautiful cardinal shots Denise!
I like the 'take-off' shot. :)

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

What a handsome bird to have visiting the feeders. We don't have anything like it here.

Valerie said...

Great pics and experience. I wish we could have cardinals in our garden.

Ileana said...

Beautiful bird!

Anni said...

LOL...

They do tend to be frustrating for the photographer, but I'm sure WE are just as annoying. LOL

Gotta love this post.

And they're oh so bright and beautiful.

Jen said...

I have a lot of pictures like that last one, the bottom half of a bird.

Margaret Adamson said...
